Our Services

PLMCS enables its clients to take forward strategically important initiatives for which there is limited internal resource. We provide focus, drive, experience and capacity. Many of these commissions are from small organisations or groups of organisations that wish to work  collaboratively but which require wider networks, expanded memberships or business cases to be made across organisations.

Bid and business case writing is a significant strand of our portfolio and we have developed proposals for a wide range of national and international funders both public and private.  These are for the most part high-value, strategically important projects but we have also been commissioned to support first time applicants helping them to interpret funders’ rules, address priorities and act as a “critical friend”.

We offer dedicated project management support to clients seeking to ‘road test’ new ideas for which there is limited internal capacity or expertise. At PLMCS we know how to take ideas from concept, through strategy to implementation.
